At a late-night White House meeting between the president and key congressional leaders, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) made clear that his conference would not approve funding for the government if any money were allowed to flow to Planned Parenthood through legislation known as Title X. "This comes down to women's health issues related to Title X," a person in the meeting told HuffPost.

Planned Parenthood is such a horrible organization that you'd rather furlough federal employees (like my mother), not pay our soldiers (I am so fucking glad he's retired now), and not give people their tax refunds. But Congress still needs to get paid! They need that $174K+ a year so badly.

Here's a lovely little quote from freshman Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI), whose salary is $174K:

"I guarantee most of you, I have more debt than all of you. With six kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I'm living high off the hog, I've got one paycheck. So I struggle to meet my bills right now."

There are people with three or more kids, student loans, and used cars managing to live on $35K a year. Cry me a fucking river.

Conservative activists have long been pushing for cultural riders and, with Republicans back in control the House, have a chance to push them forward. "Why can't you slash Planned Parenthood and NPR and these -- these non-vital programs? Why can't you slash them?" Fox News host Bill O'Reilly demanded of Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) Thursday evening.

"Well, we're talking about health care. We're talking about education," Rangel replied.

"Health care is another matter," O'Reilly said. "That has to be taken very methodically because people's lives are affected. Nobody's life is affected by NPR. Nobody's life is affected by Planned Parenthood. These are options."


I am so fucking sick of the government in this country.

I'm sick of the Republicans because of their war on women, the poor, and minorities.

I'm sick of the Democrats trying to pander to the Religious Right, and not having a fucking spine.

Why are people allowing this shit to happen?

This is... I have no words for how disgusting this girl is. Serious, or troll, it is COMPLETELY UNCALLED FOR.

Holy crap, it shifted the Earth's axis, too.


Were any of you even alive when Pearl Harbor got attacked?

Here are some choice quotes:

"Apparently God hasn't forgotten about Pearl Harbor either..."

The sheer arrogance here is astounding. Why do you think that God favors OUR country above all others, and why didn't He hit Japan with a massive quake DURING THE WAR instead of almost 70 years later?

"those damn krauts deserve to be hit by a earthquake tsunami for nuking pearl harbor."

1. Kraut is a derogatory term for Germans, not Japanese.

2. Japan didn't use a nuke on us.

Speaking of nukes.

"Karma: well japan did attack pearl harbor......."

We hit them with atomic bombs. Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Take a look at the numbers for immediate deaths, and the long-term effects from the radiation.

"who gives one shit about japan? not this guy. did they send aid when americans were dying during Katrina? hell no, remember pearl harbor? Late justice."

I have a confession to make.

Back when I was in high school, I took birth control pills. I had bad acne, and needed something to control it until my hormones stabilized.

This means that I was also a whore.

Somehow, I managed to be a whore without having ever had sex with (or kissed) anyone, even to this day. That right there is an incredible feat, don't you think?

I understand completely if anybody wants to cut off all ties with me because I was a whore. No hard feelings.


I promise I will do a post tomorrow night on something other than women's rights or politics.
umi_mikazuki: (epic shit)

Meridath was allowed to take one guest with her to her work Christmas party and invited me. It was mostly older people there, but it was kinda fun! There was good food, we played a fun game, and I happened to sit next to someone that was retired Navy.

Best thing: on the way back, I told her about how I need to find a Fonrar. She. She offered. OH MY GOD A FONRAR. /spazzes


Politics yaaaaay )

I am not even fucking kidding.

If for some emergency I have to fly, I happen to be on my period, and they tell me to remove my tampon during the gropefest, I will tell them that shit. One woman's already been made to remove her pad.

I refuse to go through the porno/radiation scanners, and I refuse to go to a private room for the gropefest. I want witnesses to lessen the chance of them groping me more than they're already ordered to do, and to help back me up if they do.

This is something I said in another post about the TSA's fuckery:

...that's how it's supposed to be in the States, re: same sex person patting you down. Not only does that cause a lot of problems for people that are gay/bi/intersex/trans/whatever else doesn't fit the binary, it doesn't completely remove the risk of a TSA employee feeling you up for personal enjoyment. For all I know, the female employee patting me (I identify as a straight cis female) down might grope me even more unnecessarily than she's already ordered to.

I forgot to mention sexual assault victims, the disabled/handicapped, and those whose faiths don't allow anyone, even a doctor, to touch certain parts of the body.

This shit needs to stop. It shouldn't have ever started in the first place.

If this article didn't piss me off enough already, this did:

"Yet another reason why I would do poorly in the army...I wouldn't not be able to let something like that slide and Id end up snipering my own men."

"furthermore, and forgive me for making a semi baseless characterjudgement, you don't seem like the sort of cloth-eared, thoughtless, stupid, reckless, dull, pointlessly-patriotic, xenophobic, murderous cunts that make for a model soldier, particularly in the United States.

correct me, of course, if i'm wrong"


Both my parents, several family members and several friends of mine have served or are serving in the military, and they are not anything like that.

Most. Soldiers. Aren't. Do not judge the many by the actions of the few idiots out there.

Edit to clarify:

I've seen numbers that range from one in six to one in three women being assaulted/raped in their lives, so really, I can't say I'm surprised. I don't trust any of the male statistics, because the majority of those are not reported due to the idiotic belief that men can't be raped, or that it makes them look weak.

What pissed me off about the article itself was the fact that the military is sweeping this shit under the rug. Don't get me wrong, I'm aware that a lot of colleges and businesses do it too. It's to prevent any negative light shown on them.

Thing is, though, it's wrong. It needs to stop. More people need to speak out, to let it be known that they won't stand for it.
umi_mikazuki: (wtf is this shit)
This scares me. A lot.

What the hell are they thinking?

I can't even put into words how much this pisses me off and scares me at the same time.
